"Our mission here at Applause New York is to bring a love and appreciation of the performing arts to all of our students, ages 0 - 18 years. We hope by exposing them to all of the different mediums in the performing arts, that they will become the next generation of adults who contribute to the arts in any capacity. We strive for excellence in each of our divisions, by creating an environment that is safe, supportive, rigorous and rewarding. Over the last 20 years, our scholarship fund has allowed new students to become a part of the Applause family and gain exposure to the Arts while developing a skill set that goes well beyond the Arts. Our alumni have gone on to perform in major motion pictures, commercials, television series and Broadway shows. Our alumni have also gone on to become successful in higher education, culinary arts, real estate and law... just to name a few!"
